Readers and fans of interactive fiction! Don't be put off by the start, it's only an article about American football for the first paragraph or so, then it turns very quickly into a wonderful SF story:

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

This is an informal community for chat about Yuletide, which was started up by participants and has now (2017) been passed over to mods. Official announcements are given at [community profile] yuletide_admin and [livejournal.com profile] yuletide_admin (which has a feed at [syndicated profile] yuletide_admin_feed).

This is intended to be a Dreamwidth equivalent of [livejournal.com profile] yuletide.

I just went back through a bunch of my DW archive and I found a few memes that I posted which people actually commented on, and then I never got back to. So I'm going to try to answer some of those in posts in the next few days?

Hey, it beats actually working. ;)

My shoulder feels less bad than it did! At least one ergonomically unfortunate writing position is actually possible for me to sit in again, hooray(?)

I haven't put a word in on the latest fic project of doom (the Elsa/Hans faerie contract fic) in quite some time, which is unfortunate. I've also got Yuletide coming up, which I have to construct some kind of requests for, I suppose? It feels like aaaages since I've done any kind of challenge, which is probably because I "skipped" YT last year, haha.

Anyway, in other news, I still think this is accurate. Someone not me should write that.
BUFFY: I can't just wait around, Will. The disk is no good to me unless you crack it soon.
ANYA: Hey! We worked really hard getting that. Xander delivered clothing.
GILES: Church approved.
BUFFY: Sorry, you guys, but we're on a clock here. Okay, Adam was at that cave so maybe he was there for a reason? I-I can--I can go back, scope it out, track him if I have to.
WILLOW: Right. And then maybe you'll get lucky and he'll still be there and he can rip your arms off for you? Buffy, you can't go back alone.
GILES: You never train with me anymore. He's gonna kick your ass.
BUFFY: Giles!
GILES: Sorry. Was it a bit honest? Terribly sorry.

Today I went through one complete magazine file of homes magazines, tore out the pages I want, and set the rest aside for someone who wants slightly torn three year old homes magazines.
I did not think there were such people, but I actually have two people who might want, so that's nice.

Then I put the torn out pages into a file with others of that sort, so I had an empty magazine file, which I filled with stuff from the front room shelves that I'm trying to empty.

I am trying to feel all accomplished at completing this small task, but, it very small.

Still, it is done now.

Tomorrow - or technically today part the second - it is Cleaner Day and I shall have many things to achieve just to make things stay roughly the same.

Life is frustrating like that.

But so it goes.

Pick a thing or two that sums up how you're doing today, this week, in general, and tell me about it in the 5-7-5 syllables of a haiku. I will leave anonymous comments screened unless otherwise asked; feel free to use this to leave private comments if that's what you're most comfortable with.

Nocturnal predatory fish use calls to stay together to hunt, while fish that are active during the day use sound to defend their territory.
